Henry Corsell, Gustav Fonandern, Hjalmar Peterson and Knut Öhrström were Swedish-American singers, who recorded for a number of labels in America and Sweden. This page has several songs from their discographies, including ten of their actual recordings. Some of the vocals are in Italian or English. They were sung in Swedish by Corsell, Öhrström and the other Wallin artists.
Hjalmar Peterson released "Storbönnernas Vals" (The Prosperous Farmers' Waltz) on both the Wallin and Victor labels. The latter version is part of this collection. Peterson published "Månstrålar Klara Glimma" (Bright Little Moon-Rays Glimmer) in his songbooks of the 1930s. Knut Öhrström's recording of "Där Björkarna Susa" (Where The Birches Sigh) was simply titled "Folkvisa".
